4 cases of police impersonation in 3 weeks

DENVER - Denver police released information Monday about yet another police impersonation case. It's at least the fourth such report in Colorado in three weeks.

Denver police say the latest incident happened earlier this month in the area of South University Boulevard and East Alameda Avenue.

Police say the victim was driving the morning of April 8 when the vehicle behind her activated blue and white lights. The vehicle was described as an white older-model 4-door car. The suspect is described as a black male, 45-50 years old, about 6-feet tall with short hair. He was wearing a black uniform and had a badge, but it was not a police badge.

Police say the same woman spotted the man again about two weeks later in the area of West 6th Avenue and Bannock Street, but she was unable to obtain a license plate number. The victim did not encounter the suspect during the second incident.

Similar cases were reported in Aurora, Loveland and Sheridan. Authorities are still investigating the motives in these incidents.

Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867) or by using the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers mobile app. All tipsters remain anonymous and are eligible for an award of up to $2,000.

The Metro Denver Crime Stoppers mobile app is immediately available as a free download on the App Store for Apple devices, on Google Play for Android devices and on the BlackBerry App World for select BlackBerry devices.
